Indeed its a good option inchoosing Dzire , VDI will be a better choice for long term usage , maintenance, fuel efficiency ,cost effectiveness in long term .

Hi Lovelesh Are you sure that your Dzire Vxi gives 18 kms/lts, How much mileage you get in city and how much in highway, I am also in dilemma like Sailesh whether to choose Vxi or Vdi.

I advice u 2 buy vxi or preferably zxi,bcoz the petrol version of dzire is more smooth and easy to drive than the diesel,but i agree diesel is also smooth but not when compared to petrol-if ur first preference is mileage its better to buy vdi or zdi,bcoz the petrol version gives only a mileage about 12 to 14.if ur preference is riding comfort better go for avxi or zxi model...

Hi Shailesh. I have had the same dilemma myself. Depending upon the city you are in the VDI costs 75-90 thousand above the VXI. So if your mileage is 10,000 and you do not anticipate this to go up significantly, then buy the VXI. I you are buying a diesel so that you go for more outings and see your mileage going up significantly (50% at least) then buy the VDI. Also an important question is "how long do you plan to keep the car". In your current mileage it would take at least 3-3.5 years to recover the price diff between VDI & VXI. So if you want to keep a car for at least 5 years, then the VDI could still be considered with your current mileage. But remember, for the first 3 years, you are just recovering the difference of diesel and petrol cars.

hi it is useless to buy a diesel car for a person whose running is below 18000 km/annual.you should go for a patrol car.

Its the most ugliest car i have seen in a long time. Its completely out of proportion, the front and the back look like 2 different cars. Donno know why anyone would want to buy a sick looking car like DZire, a 1980 contessa looks nicer & cleaner and better proportioned than this one.

The Golden rule is that if your monthly drive is less than 1500 KM than never think of Diesal Vehicle. Dezire VXI is good sedan.
